Pattern Description:

I love the ocean and many of my fiber art jewelry pieces as well as my knitted accessories reflect this love. The starfish is a particularly appealing design motif and this pattern explores ways to use it that go far beyond the three jewelry pieces in the pattern. Suggestions for adapting them to other things to wear and to household items are included on the last page of the pattern.

This pattern will teach you to quickly crochet a starfish ring, brooch and earrings. They're easy to make and fun to wear. The many detailed photos and clear instructions guarantee your success. These are made with three different weights of yarn from thread to DK, all readily and inexpensively available online or in craft stores.

This five page PDF pattern includes:

Three different starfish patterns
Nine big color close-up photos
Very clearly written instructions
No abbreviations
Materials lists for each piece
A full page of suggestions for other uses for this motif
Technique tips
Finishing instructions

Wear or make these on the beach and give new meaning to social networking! Each piece takes only a few yards of thread so you'll use up scraps you already have on hand. These are so much fun to make you'll find yourself addicted to starfish. Even though the earrings and ring are fine gauge, you'll finish each piece very quickly. The brooch is even faster to make.

My fiber art jewelry has been published in 1000 Jewelry Inspirations and Lark Books' Jewelry With a Hook. Now you can make this starfish jewelry for yourself.
